There is no one reason why buildings and structures get damaged. The job of a forensic structural engineer is to determine if the cause was an inadequate initial design or poor construction. They also can figure out if plumbing problems or natural events like fires or earthquakes play a role. In the process of handling the insurance claim, everyone must understand the proximate cause of damage. This includes anybody that is involved from the insurer to the property owner. However, only a thorough forensic structural engineering inspection can determine these causes.
